L - Pale gold. 3mm white head cleared quickly to minimalist lacing.
S - When I opened the bottle I immediately was hit by 'that classic Czech pilsener smell' and pungent - lovely! Hard to define, somewhere between fresh cut grass and fresh cut timber for me here.
T - Lovely. Classic pilsner with it's bready/biscuity edge.
M - Fresh, refreshing, very balanced on the hops versus richness/body.
O - I think it's a lovely beer, and I will definitely buy it again. The lack of head or ongoing carbonation is a surprise - and it's not my glass - but the CO2 is clearly evident in the mouth, and good. So I'm not overly concerned about how the CO2 presents itself in the glass which is 2ndary for me.

Served cool-cold from 500ml GREEN bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Very light golden colour, clear, lots of small bubbles. Thin white head. Head lets down appearance.

S) Skunk more than everything else and it lasts longer than other Czech pilsners in green bottles. After it fades, bitter Czech hops.

T) Ok, good balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness, neither is too strong but are both definitely present.

F) Refreshing, fizzy with a slightly bitterness in the after taste.

O) Decent pilsner, put it in a brown bottle and you can improve it a lot.

500ml green bottle: This one pours a clear golden color. There was a small white head that didn’t linger long: it was a bit fizzy. It had a fairly typical commercial lager aroma, but a bit stronger than most. A good bit of musty corn in there. The taste wasn’t all that bad: it is drinkable. Typical corn adjunct lager taste with a touch of bitterness in the finish.

Purchased at the Marks and Spencer's supermarket, this beer is brewed exclusively for the M&S. Coming in a 500ml slim green bottle, BB 10/2010, served chilled in a pint-size weizen glass.

A: pours a light golden hue with good clarity and lots of large bubbles ascending from the bottom of the glass, supporting a 1.5cm thick foamy cotton-white head.
S: a touch of semi-sharp doughy sourness underlines the otherwise fruity+grassy hoppy profile, leaving lightly sweet grainy and nutty malts lagging behind. Not complex at all.
T: the flavour is easily the lightest I've had for this beer style... semi-sour grainy at first, turning lightly grassy-hoppy in the middle, then an sweet-sour lemony aftertaste and nuttiness from malts catch up, leaving very little bitterness in the end. The finishing touch is way too light in flavour and in body - in fact, slightly disappointing.
M&D: lightly carbonated, easy to quaff, but the body falls quite thin throughout the drink, without important support of maltiness and a more pronounced hop profile that a traditional Bohemian Pilsner should show. I find this lager numbed down greatly from the tap-version (Bohemia Regent Světlý Ležák) I've had whilst in Czech Republic. Maybe it's not a good idea to brew it "exclusively" for M&S after all... lest people wrongly assume this is as good (read "mediocre") as a real Czech pilsner can get?
